Learning to swim.
The Need - Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death among children 14 and younger.
The Response - During the summer, young children learn aquatic safety at YMCA sponsored swim lessons. Your gift of $30 helps one child learn to be safe in and around water.
The Need - Organizations that work in isolation can duplicate efforts and waste valuable resources.
The Response - The Family YMCA of Emporia-Greensville has myriads of partners throughout the community, including the Virginia Cooperative Extension, EGRA, the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, and the Healthy Community Task Force. Our partnerships extend the reach of your contribution to the Y and help your tax dollars stretch farther as we provide essential services to the community.
